“Warm and inviting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Have been here on numerous occasions and just adore it.
Warm and friendly staff who see regulars as friends as opposed to customers.
The homemade soup is always a winner...perfect for the upcoming cold days.
Cake choice is plentiful and, although I don't need to choose gluten free, if the gluten free lemon drizzle is available I have to have a piece...delicious :-)
10/10 to Debs and the girls :-)

“It's ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This coffee shop is ok, the room itself is not the cosiest , the ambiance doesn't exist , I've been a few times but wouldn't necessarily revisit them, choices are limited and service lacks warmth

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

The bee in the butterfly, busy , friendly café, great staff , friendly, helpful and attentive even in the very busy times you are acknowledged! fair trade choices, amazing home made cakes and one of the only cafes I know with gluten free options, choice of low calorie desserts, dairy free etc.
Heart warming soups-yummy!! herbal teas, lovely coffee and cakes.
Definitely NOT to be missed on a visit to Hexham!

“Little paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Sit and watch the town go by as you imagine you're anywhere in the world. The owner is well travelled and has lots of interesting nick nacks and mementoes which help take you to other worlds. Friendly and chatty staff without being in your face. Great food and great coffee. Highly recommended!

“Best Bagels!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

A great place for perfect Bagels and scrummy coffee! I always make a point of going whenever I visit the North East and Hexham. Not to be missed.
